The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics is look­ing to form sus­tain­able part­ner­ships glob­ally in a bid to im­prove ed­u­ca­tion us­ing tech­nol­ogy. In a pre­sen­ta­tion to the African min­is­te­rial del­e­ga­tion at In­no­va­tion Africa 2016, the com­pany said it is will­ing to work with gov­ern­ments in train­ing and pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tion solutions where re­quired.

“For the con­ti­nent to truly achieve eco­nomic growth, we im­plore both the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors to work closely to­gether so that it can ad­dress the con­ti­nent’s press­ing is­sue around ac­cess to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion,” Sam­sung cor­po­rate ci­ti­zen­ship and pub­lic af­fairs man­ager Abey Tau said.

Sam­sung Elec­tronic’s so­lar-pow­ered In­ter­net schools, smart schools and e-learn­ing cen­tres are among the solutions pre­sented to im­prove ac­cess to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion. “As a global cit­i­zen, we un­der­stand how im­por­tant it is for us to use our tech­nol­ogy to give back to so­ci­ety. And we have done just that through the var­i­ous ed­u­ca­tion solutions we’ve launched in Africa,” Tau said.
